Dispute Resolution

Sometimes no matter how hard you try to concentrate on your core business, you cannot avoid getting involved in a dispute. If that does happen you need to instruct a firm like Hart Brown with a team of commercial dispute resolution experts to ensure your interests are fully protected.  All of our lawyers are specialists in their fields so you can be confident that you are in safe hands.

We understand that commercial disputes can be distracting and time consuming so it is important they are resolved as quickly as possible.   By offering advice which is straightforward, practical and cost effective we will strive to achieve the best result we can for you in the circumstances.

We have many years experience of dealing with all types of commercial litigation before many different courts and tribunals.  We pride ourselves on coming up with creative and practical solutions to even the most bitterly fought disputes.

Whilst we will always take cases to trial when necessary, at the same time we always promote early settlement of cases ‘out of court’ including by mediation where that is both sensible and possible.

We act for clients locally, nationally and internationally. Most of our work comes from existing clients or recommendations by those clients, other lawyers or experts with whom we deal.

Our dedicated team of commercial litigation experts deal with a broad range of business disputes including:

  • Contractual disputes (of all types)
  • Claims for misrepresentation
  • Commercial disputes
  • Commercial injunctions
  • Insurance claims
  • Partnership disputes
  • Professional negligence claims
  • Shareholder disputes
